But health first of all: the latest answer to the age-old question of whether or not moderate wine consumption has beneficial effects on health comes from Dutch research published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Healt. A 40-year research that monitored nearly 1400 men, looking for a relationship between daily wine consumption and health conditions. Well, compared to abstainers, consumers have a life expectancy of 5 years longer and 48% less likely to have cardiovascular problems.
Not bad, right? But do not take it as a "permission" to exceed in consumption: here we speak strictly of wine and, above all, of half a glass a day.
Take comfort in thinking that the bottle from which you pour your daily half glass, from today, is a little more environmentally friendly, thanks to theagreement entered into between Unione Vini and Assovetro.
Wine and vetro: a “winning combination - second Antonio Lui of Assovetro - which accompanies the development of Made in Italy “; from today it also accompanies the development of strategies to make both supply chains increasingly environmentally friendly, in the name of quality and safety.
Among the first proposals put forward is the strengthening of separate collection, including through division based on color, which would improve recycling and recovery operations in both economic and environmental terms.
The Unione Vini, for its part, already foresees the organization of seminars and meetings between winemakers and glass producers, to learn more about the properties and characteristics of the containers and how their use can also affect the quality of the finished product.
